Couchbase Mobile - Building Always-Available Apps, Always-Responsive Apps

With the explosion of rich multimedia content and data, proliferation of ever more powerful smartphones and tablets, and plethora of mobile apps available in the market, mobile app developers are constantly seeking out new ways to drive app adoption. Mobile apps are becoming very data-driven in nature, as it is really the content and continuous access to that content that truly differentiates the best apps that succeed in the market from those that don’t. There is a new breed on mobile apps that’s quickly becoming the norm: apps that are always-available and always-responsive even when the network is down or slow. Download this white paper to find out how to use Couchbase Mobile to build always-available offline apps that will improve your apps’ user experience.

High Performance with Distributed Caching

High Performance with Distributed Caching

Today’s web, mobile, and IoT applications need to operate at increasingly demanding scale and performance levels to handle: Thousands to millions of users. Terabytes or petabytes of data. Submillisecond response times. Multiple device types. Global reach. Caching frequently used data in memory can dramatically improve application response times, typically by orders of magnitude. Get your “High-Performance Distributed Caching” guide to learn more.

Choosing the Right Database for Your Social Game

Choosing the Right Database for Your Social Game

Many games have accelerated from zero to millions of users literally overnight — OMGPOP’s Draw Something game recently reached 50 million downloads within 50 days of the launch. Figuring out how to support that kind of growth, while sustaining a snappy and compelling gaming experience, presents an enormous challenge at every layer of the game’s technology stack. To power all this virtual online activity, a solid backend system is needed as the demands on the social game applications fluctuate. Learn why NoSQL databases are particularly suited to support social games.

Hybrid Application Design: Balancing Cloud-Based and Edge-Based Mobile Data

Hybrid Application Design: Balancing Cloud-Based and Edge-Based Mobile Data

We’re now seeing an explosion in the number and types of devices, the number of mobile users, and the number of mobile applications, and users are increasingly interacting with larger volumes and varieties of data on their devices. More powerful devices, better data-sync capabilities, and peer-to-peer device communications are dramatically impacting what users expect from their apps and which technologies developers will need to utilize to meet those expectations.

NoSQL and Ad Targeting

NoSQL and Ad Targeting

Ad and offer targeting systems present a host of interactive software scaling challenges. Interactive software software with which a person iteratively interacts in real time) has changed in fundamental ways over the last 35 years. The “online” systems of the 1970s have, through a series of intermediate transformations, evolved into today’s web and mobile applications. These systems solve new problems for potentially vastly larger user populations, and they execute atop a computing infrastructure that has changed even more radically over the years. Learn how a NoSQL database is best positioned to support ad and offer targeting systems.
